MICHAEL DE FEO

Street Art

Best known in the street art movement for his ubiquitous and iconic flower image, artist Michael De Feo has been creating illegal works on the streets for nearly 25 years in more than 60 international cities including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Cabo San Lucas, Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Buenos Aires, and Hong Kong. Although his flower is the only image he repeats in his street art, Michael has created a variety of other works in the streets including his most recent takeovers of fashion advertising in NYC's bus stop shelters. De Feo's current studio practice reflects and continues his interest in the world of fashion by painting atop photography he sources from fashion magazines. His current work blurs the line of illegal interventions and sponsored partnerships like his recently designed line of women's accessories that will launch in Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom Spring/Summer of 2016. Other fashion projects for 2016 include a takeover of Neiman Marcus' "The Book" catalog and an influencer campaign for Christian Louboutin.

Not limited to the streets as his canvas, De Feo's work has also appeared in numerous galleries and museums around the world: The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, Conn.; MASS MoCA, North Adams, Mass.; Museo de Arte, San Juan, Puerto Rico; The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; Colette, Paris; Stolen Space, London; The National Art Gallery, Bangladesh; and more. Notable exhibitions include Wooster on Spring at New York's Candle Building, which Roberta Smith of The New York Times noted as one of 2006's top 10 cultural events; 2005's Two Atmospheres at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Conn.; 2008's Flowers at Manifesta 7 in Trento, Italy; 2010's Mining for Splinters and Diamonds at No Borders Art in Hong Kong; and 2013's 10 Years of Woostercollective, at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.
